The first thing to do is see if you are getting power to the fuel pump. Go underneath by the gas tank, find the plug that goes to the top of the tank. Unplug the plug, stick a test light in the wire going to the vehicle, and have someone crank the car. Check the wires to see if you have power. If you have power, you have to disconnect the two straps on the gas tank, and lower the tank slowly with a floor jack. As you lower it, disconnect the hoses on top, and disconnect the screws on the gas fill neck. Lower the tank to the ground. On top of the tank there is a lock ring. You can remove it with a hammer and screwdriver, then remove the unit and replace the pump.

My 2001 Chevy Malibu won't start.. in September if


sometimes the new fuel pump goes bad, it does happen, if you disconnect the fuel line @ engine and hold it in a can or bottle, have an assistant crank engine, but do not start it, if you have gas coming out, your pump is working, careful , it will come out fast !!!!!!!!!!!! have a rag ready. now you can move on to find the real problem.

With my 2001 Malibu it wouldn't start sometimes. Try changing the the fuel pump relay (It's in the fuse box & is less than $20 to change).

ok, well as for the relay, yes there is one in your under hood fuse box....or inside the drivers door...but if you don't hear the pump, fear the worst, it may be dead.....happens ALOT.....check and change the relay, about $10, then if nothing, time for a new pump.

2001 chevy s 10


Find power wire coming from relay to pump when key switched on, & follow it back to pump. If you have power out of relay & nothing at pump, then I'd look for a break in wire to rear, or just run a new one. Double check your ground as well.

2001 Chevy S-10 fuel pump circut


no that is not true. i have a sonoma and when i changed the fuel pump it was on its own circuit. the only special thing about the fuel pump is that it is a one piece assembly with the fuel level sending unit. so if you have to replace the sending unit you have to buy a whole new pump.

Fuel pressure problem.I replaced the fuel pump on 2001 chevy s-10


Most fuel injected vehicles have a relay that controls the fuel pump so after the ignition switch has been on for about 5 seconds and the engine is not running, the fuel pump automatically shuts off.
I don't know what your original problem was, but I think if the car runs normally, you have probably fixed your problem. If you don't have a manual, you can probably go to the library and take a look at a manual that covers your vehicle.
